hmm, that is a thought. i was hopping to find a native program, but if i can get winSCP running in wine, that would help.

I guess you skimmed my post. gFTP (command is gftp) is just like cuteFTP and winSCP. You just need to find the server path for sftp-server and typed it in for the SSH tab in the options window. I think it is in /usr/lib/ssh. For gFTP to login through SFTP. Select SSH.

Linux programs tells you what it needs unlike Windows it tells you crap what it needs.

problem is i tried to follow the install steps provided by gFTP, and they did not work. i got to the ./configure by make was not created, and all of the "makefile.sh makefile, INSTALL, install.sh" type files created during the ./configure had nothing to do with MAKE.

so after a very long day and being more then slightly crabby i gave up on it. it does not work as advertised. it is not in the yum repositories for RH9 or the legacy repositories for FC, and their RPM failed several dependancies and i did not have the time nor the patients to go chacing them down. 4 of them IIRC. 2 of i know for a fact are running on my RH box as they are part of the gcc libs and i have ALL of the gcc libs installed and updated that are available for RH9.

no i did not skim over you post. i jumped right on trying to get gftp working, but it does not work as per their instructions.

Oh I thought you have trouble trying to access SFTP. Red hat comes with gftp. Look on the CDs or type apt-get gftp. No need to compile it if you have it on the CDs. Always look there and then if you did not find it go download it and compile it.

You have to do
./configure
make
make install

./configure creates the makefile. make compiles from the instructions of the makefile. make install copies the libraries and execution files to the normal default directory /usr/local or it can be anywhere if you give a prefix path. On some distributions it will also run ldconfig for you.

You need a gcc compiler, headers or devel packages installed for gnome, and headers or devel packages for the kernel.

the instructions you gave for compiling gftp are exactly what i tried and got the above errors. (sad)

ill pull out my CDs and see if i can at least find a working vs of gftp that i can access. odd that if it is on the CDs that yum can not find it.

secpanel

Have you tried secpanel?

http://www.pingx.net/secpanel/

From their website:
SecPanel serves as a graphical user interface for managing and running SSH (Secure Shell) and SCP (Secure Copy) connections

SecPanel sits on top of SSH software-suites and supports the SSH.com and the OpenSSH-version.
